In northern Burundi, families are suffering from the severe effects of hunger, malnutrition, and preventable diseases. Children’s lives are being tragically cut short and parents feel powerless to help. In fact, Burundi is at the top of the Global Hunger Index’s list of countries with “alarming levels of hunger.” More than 70 per cent of its population is malnourished! 

This can no longer be ignored.

That’s why we support a programme in the community of Mwumba that focuses on:

  • Improving the health of undernourished children and families 
  • Increasing access to educational opportunities
  • Establishing care groups that address health and nutrition for mothers and children
  • Empowering churches to support the most vulnerable in the community, especially children

But we can’t do this without you.

Will you join us in making a difference in the lives of numerous families and children who are suffering in Burundi? Together, we can help them not only survive, but have hope for a brighter and healthier future.

Thank you for your faithful support.
